As previously mentioned, Rihanna is the newest celebrity face for Dior. She becomes the first woman of color to become an official spokesperson for the French label since the house launched seven decades ago. Last week, the print campaign surfaced online and now the video ad has debuted.
Like the still images, the 27-year-old is serving major eleganza in the accompanying clip. Steven Klein who helmed the shoot also directs the visual which was filmed at France’s Palace of Versailles.
“Rihanna‘s mystery and intrigue combined with her razor-sharp looks and sensibility, are the essential, perfect elements to create the stage for Secret Garden.” – Steven Klein
The clip also features a snippet of RiRi’s intro song off her forthcoming eighth studio album. “If Only For A Night” heavily samples a Florence + The Machine track with a similar name. Give the clip a view below. It’s very reminiscent of Beyonce’s “Partition” visual but more high fashion and less booty dropping ;)
It’s hard to believe, but no woman of color has ever been named the face of Dior since the house launched seven decades ago. Rihanna becomes the first to do so. The Bajan singer joins actresses Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, and Marion Cotillard as current faces of the brand.
The 27-year-old is simply stunning for the French fashion label. The campaign, titled “Secret Garden IV,” was shot France’s Palace of Versailles. Several images snapped by Steven Klein have leaked online showcasing RiRi serving major eleganza.
The accompanying video will feature a track titled “A Night” which features a sample of Florence + The Machine’s “Only If for A Night.” Check out the print campaign below.
Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne previously worked together for Chanel last year. They played regal characters in the luxury brand’s “Reincarnation” short film. The duo continues to be Karl Lagerfeld’s muses for the iconic French label.
This time, however, Pharrell and Cara look prepped and ready to climb every mountain in the Austrian Alps. Should they ever remake The Sound of Music for the big screen, which BTW Hollywood should never do, I can see Fräulein Maria and Captain von Trapp rocking these modern and contemporary designer threads.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind my hands on a couple of pieces worn by Williams. Check out more images below from Chanel’s 2015 Paris-Salzburg campaign snapped by Lagerfeld himself.
With no films in the Oscar race this past awards season, Jennifer Lawrence was pretty much missing in action. That must’ve been a huge bummer for Dior. J-Law, being one of their spokeswomen, is contractually obligated to wear the French brand’s designs on the red carpet. No worries though, because Lawrence slays it in their 2015 Be Dior ad campaign.
While it’s clear Photoshop was used, it’s not too much where it’s distracting as it was in previous ad campaigns where she’s practically unrecognizable. The Hunger Games actress looks effortlessly chic holding the luxury label’s high-end bags which she’s been pimping since Fall 2012.
Italian photographer Paolo Roversi shot the 24-year-old in these stunning images. Check them all out below.
Of all the things Britney Spears has done outside of her music, her lingerie line makes the most sense. After all, she pretty much parades around on stage with not much more coverage.
The 33-year-old previously released promotional photos for her Spring/Sumer 2015 Intimate Britney Spears campaign. Today, a video drops featuring the “Work Bitch” singer delivering breathy poetry while glowing radiantly in front of glass doors. Girl is serving major romance!!! Check out the vid below promoting her Elvira collection.
Not only is he the highest paid DJ in the world, but dare I say he’s the hottest as well. Calvin Harris almost broke the internet last year when Emporio Armani revealed the first images of the Scottish DJ as their new spokesman. I fully expect these two new images to go viral as well. Rita Ora was a fool to cheat on him ;)
The 31-year-old once again shows off his extremely taut torso for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 underwear ad campaign. The moody black and white campaign was shot in Los Angeles by photographer Boo George. “He isn’t a model by nature, and this creates a more sincere and engaging bond with the public,” says the Italian brand. Check the recently-released promo pics below.
This shoot must’ve felt really weird for Rihanna. She’s typically not wearing this much clothing. Am I right or am I right?
“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing in WWD. “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”
The “Diamonds” singer makes her debut as Balmain’s latest celebrity ambassador in the first batch of photos for their Spring 2014 ad campaign. RiRi channels 90s realness with her curly bob while wearing a leather jumpsuit, super sexy houndstooth suit, gold chain link top and pink kimono-like robe. Frequent Lady Gaga photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped the visuals.
I have to say, I’m liking this curly coif and subtle natural-looking makeup on Rihanna. Haute couture really suits her. Let’s face it, love Rihanna, but she can sometimes look a little trashy. Check out more images below.
Donatella Versace is going all out for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. Just last week, we saw the first stunning photos featuring Mother Monster as their new spokesperson. Today, we feast our eyes on the lucky guy fronting their mens line.
Capturing the brand’s rebellious and youthful spirit is none other than Awkward and Glee star Nolan Gerard Funk. The 27-year-old actor looks dashingly handsome in their stylish suits and extremely ripped in their tight briefs. Check out more pics of Funk’s campaign below snapped by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
“I love our new Versace menswear campaign starring Nolan Funk,” said Donatella Versace. “He brings these iconic Versace pieces to life with his energy and spirit. The campaign is full of the essence of Versace, now and forever.”
